BOISE, Idaho (AP) — A disputed bill to allow people to carry concealed weapons to class on Idaho’s college campuses has prompted a meeting next week of the State Board of Education.

The panel aims to meet this morning over the issue, which so far has drawn the ire of college leaders across the state.

For instance, Boise State University says it would prefer to stick to the status quo, in which university officials can restrict guns on campus.

Trustees at North Idaho College in Coeur d’Alene and College of Southern Idaho in Twin Falls also have expressed opposition.

The measure, awaiting debate in Senate State Affairs Committee, would allow retired law enforcement officers and people with Idaho’s enhanced concealed-carry permit to bring firearms to campus.

A similar measure failed in 2011.
